Product Description:

Director of such modern-day classics as THE BLUES BROTHERS and ANIMAL HOUSE, filmmaker John Landis has been responsible for some of the most memorable characters in American pop culture. In his first foray into the documentary genre, Landis profiles a real-life American character: used-car salesman Michael Bennett, aka the "Slasher" of the film's title. A fidgety, chainsmoking fast-talker with a voice like driveway gravel, Bennett travels the country helping used-car dealerships liquidate their languishing clunkers in weekend blowouts replete with drastically slashed prices and smarmy, in-your-face sales techniques. As Landis' camera follows Bennett through one particularly frenetic weekend sale in Memphis, Tennessee, SLASHER becomes both a fascinating character study and a cultural expose of that most enduring of American archetypes--the used-car salesman.
